I am sure there is likely a very simple explanation to this, but I am tired of ripping my hair out on it, so any help is most welcome.
Somehow, shortcuts are not working for After Effects. I am right-handed, and all of a sudden, they just stopped working. I tried remapping my keyboard, but that didn't resolve the matter. I reset the keyboard remapping, and did an ENTIRE un-install and re-install of After Effects. For a short time, that did fix things. Then, it stopped working again, for no reason I can see. This also happened to me in the final quarter of 2016, before the latest release/update, so this issue is not confined to just this release.
If I try to use the shortcuts as if I were left-handed, then the same ones I am used to, do work. This is odd, since this is why I tried re-mapping the keyboard, but to no avail --- even though other software acknowledged the change. This problem is really slowing me down, as even the most basic CTRL+ALT to replace a layer (or a LOT of layers), I cannot easily execute. Can anyone help me with why this is going on at all? I have tried clearing the cache, purging memory, all the usual stuff (I'm not a total loss in the computer department), but this is as frustrating to me as it gets.

Thanks in advance.
Sorry to hear of your trouble with keyboard shortcuts. I see this issue sometimes with non-English installations of After Effects. Could that possibly at the root of your issue?
Please let us know if you solved this issue, or if you still need help.
